Vigo Wijers

Hi everyone! My name is Vigo Wijers, 22 years of age, and next academic year I will be the chairman of the XLVIIth STAR board.

I started my journey at Erasmus University just last year. I previously studied International Business at the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences after which I decided I wasn’t quite finished with my academic journey. I embarked on a premaster in Business Administration and to get acquainted with the city and its students I joined STAR as chairman of the premaster committee. I learned a lot and quickly realised the value that STAR has to offer in terms of development through practice rather than textbook, this is also what motivated me to apply for a board year.

As your chairman, I will be responsible for safeguarding STAR’s long-term strategy and managing our relationship with RSM and other fundamental stakeholders. I will also be assisting my fellow board members with their personal development and making sure they reach their personal goals for the upcoming year.

I am beyond excited for what’s to come as it promises to be an amazing year filled with amazing people. Hope to meet you soon!
